Hi all! Looking for advice on mixing soils. What would be the benefits of mixing or layering purple cow ( indicanja ) with something like coco loco, with or without dry amendments? Would it remain a water only soil ? Would adding recharge and or fishsh!t be all that was needed ? Would feeding soluble seaweed be advisable and or something like roots organics trinity?
there’s a topic similar on here somewhere… called something like (somebody’s)Nikkis coco autopot expirement… I remember something like that, mixed loco coco with soil. Probably good help there and from others here. I tried for a couple minutes to find it again but it’s hiding on me now…
Thank you I will try to find
Where by chance would I begin a search?
The search lens, up by the login buttons, I just found it again, typed in Nickys Autopot
Sweet many thanks
sorry it’s a little different than I imagined I remembered
Still great reading !
I found something over under grow support “ mixing super/living soil with coco loco
Than you @Jaysittinback that helps to clear things up a bit
There’s not a soil out there that will water feed only to harvest. Choose a good amended soil, Jacks 321 and skip the soil mixtures and layering. Nutrients would be needed around weeks 4-6 with FF mediums
OG what are your thoughts on something like purple cows indicanja?
The ingredients look pretty good, the peat moss and perlite are a plus with drainage. Are you planning on an all organic grow or salt based fertilizer? This will determine your feeding requirements, PH and PPM testing
Thanks for the advice I will look into jacks for next grow. Right now I have 4 clones in c.o.m ( stonington) and one in purple cow ( indicanja) . The one in the p.cow was an extra that seemed to have root problems, I took her out of the tent and set her on the porch, like a bad girl in time out, the wife in her infinite wisdom walks by feeling sorry for it drowns it in tap water and hey e few days later it’s the best looking girl out of the bunch (WTH) the stonington I have had issues with , newb mistakes on my way to mastering in generalism and minimalism.
Pushing for all organics. Still don’t know what I’m doing per say ! I have coast of Maine dry amendments, blue planets soluble seaweed, roots organics trinity, some fishsh!t and recharge.
The COM is an excellent soil medium! I’m running 6 clones in right now. Normally I’m a coco dude and if I can persuade you to give it a try on your next grow you’ll never look back. The COM dry amendments should work for you just research the frequency of top dressing
OG is it the COM stonington you refer too?
Yes the Stonington Blend
